Area 04 Steward Basics Webinar
BCGEU Virtual Zoom Langley, BC V2Y 0A1 Canada
The Covid pandemic prevents us from gathering for face-to-face steward training but we are pleased to offer this interim Steward Basics webinar. This webinar is for you if you are a steward but have not yet attended our Steward Fundamentals course.
As space is limited, registrations are being accepted on a first come, first-served basis. The deadline for registration is February 23, 2022.
By the end of this webinar, you will understand:
→ your rights and responsibilities as a steward
→ how to get started as a steward
→ the grievance procedure
→ how to handle disciplinary grievances
This webinar does not replace our in-person STEP UP! and Steward Fundamentals courses. Once we can offer these in-person courses safely, you will be invited to register for them.
To join this online training, you will need:
→ a computer with internal audio or external speakers, a microphone and built-in camera
→ a high-speed internet connection
→ a relatively quiet space, a pad of paper and a pen and a copy of your collective agreement
*It is possible but very challenging to do this on a smartphone.
You can request a union-paid leave of absence from your employer for this training. We will send you a leave-of-absence form to submit to your supervisor.
